Personally, I'm going to laugh! AHAHA!

Defensively, I'm going to say how in the installation is states hidden: source is not responsible for anything to mess up your system, or even for killing your parents. Yes it does before you even question me on that.

Seriously, I dont know how to help you. Sorry. Maybe you should have been more patient with it an stuff, before braking your own pc. LOL, :o :rolleyes:

Its not possible for Hidden to break your PC all by itself. Maybe you could help us out by telling us some basic specs of the PC and the exact error message(s) you are getting and/or the behavious of your PC.

That's just part of Boxy's signature. Have you done any virus scans to see if Hidden: Source was the offender? If so, what files?

ThePunisher
13th June 2006, 20:25
i did virus scans, adware scans, spyware scans but nothing its really puzzling me help!!

So I Did Ctrl-Alt-Delete And It Didnt Work. So Then I Restarted My Pc

I'm betting your filesystem got corrupted somehow, because of that restart, not because of anything the game did.

You did not get a virus from installing H:S. Don't jump to conclusions.

Its not a virus for f's sake, sounds like your vid card is frekaing out, but thats after reading your half ass post..]

moral of this story being, don't install crazy 3rd-party unsupported programs :p

Try wiping hidden and re-installing.

You somehow corrupt your system by holding down the power button, I have personal experience for this. I just did a disk check and everything worked fine.

This post gives me a headache. Not to be anal, but please don't capitalize every single word. He'll, I prefer someone who types in all lower-case than someone who Types This Way.

Its Really God-Damn Annoying If You Type Like This, Its Also Annoying When YOU TYPE IN ALL CAPS!!

Try reinstalling your videocard drivers, I think you didnt reinstall your old card's drivers and thats the issue.

MiasmicAnomie
13th June 2006, 23:13
You should reinstall your video drivers, reinstall a game, and see if that solves it.

Useless facts:

There are 484 capitalized letters in his post.

a little under 2.89% of those letters are the letter "P"

and some of the captial letters together spell: "IWASLAVA"

which I found mildly humorous.

btw Hidden most likely didn't give you a virus, unless you got it from somewhere other than the mirror list...

if you DID get a virus, (which I highly doubt), then you probably got it from whatever that crap that downloaded from the server.

most likely its a video card problem... check the drivers, get the latest, w/e, and make sure you're not overclocking it.

also Hidden-Source isn't by Steam... (or Valve for that matter), its a 3rd party mod.

and I wouldn't know what would be causing your USB crap not to work, maybe someone else can help there... (maybe his USB ports run through the Front Side Bus and since the video card is messing up then it's screwing with the USB?)

also, full specs would be helpfull. ie. soundcard vidcard kind of ram etc, maybe the new config with the new vidcard is the bottleneck

Ow And Typing This Is Really Annoying!!!

I didn't read any of the posts, but who the fuck Types A Whole Paragraph Capitalizing The First Letter Of Every Word AND THEN EVENTUALLY JUST MOVES INTO ALL CAPS. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU.

My dad had only just fixes my PC a few days before this all happened...

Maybe the previous problem wasn't correctly resolved, or fixed. Obviously you've had problems beforehand, and I'm sure several before that incident which is, probably, due to the fact that you're irresponsible with your computer. Some folks here may be sympathetic and try to help, but personally, I think you should just quit.

The exact same thing is going on after I installed hidden. If I restart I have red blue green squares all over the screen. I have to shut the computer off 3 times to get it to work.

It's not a virus tho lol

I think the real problem is that they let anyone have access to the internet. There should be some sort of test that little kids take before they go online.

or maybe, your clan gave you virus.

You did find your clan server, download stuff from them and then suddenly crash. Maybe clan hate you and wanted you go away.
